Artist in Hotel
The Park Hotel Tokyo (1-7-1 Higashi-Shimbashi, Minato-ku, Tokyo) plans to add nine Artist Rooms per year over the next three years to create an entire Artist Floor, totaling 31 rooms, as part of its "Artist in Hotel" project, an adaptation of the well known "Artist-In-Residence" program in a hotel setting.
In the project, the hotel has turned guest rooms into Artist Rooms encapsulating their creators' passions and views of the world, with Japanese artists painting on walls and decorating the rooms with their original paintings or art objects based on the inspiration they obtained while staying at the hotel.
Artist Room Concept
As of October 2013, the highly popular Artist Room Sumo and Artist Room Zen are available for reservation.
In November, the renowned paper sculptor, Naoki Takenouchi, is producing a room under the theme of Japanese Paper Garden, and Japanese sumi ink artist, Kiyoko Abe, will begin her work under the theme of Dragon in December.
With this project the hotel endeavors to reach out to foreign guests who are interested in Japanese aesthetics and arts in order to help enhance their cultural experiences during their stay in Japan. It offers visitors an unforgettable opportunity to enjoy art from the comfort of their hotel room.
